Rab Discontinued the Windveil in January 2018
The Rab Windveil Jacket is our Editor's Choice Award winner as the Best Overall Wind Breaker because it was the highest scorer in our comparative testing and is a perfect choice for so many different outdoor activities. The Windveil Jacket is among the jackets we would recommend first whether we are going running, climbing, mountain biking, hiking, or peak bagging. In fact, it is hard to think of an activity that it is not well suited to. We found it to be among the best when it came to breathability, and it also included mesh lined pockets and a chest snap for moving with the zipper open, features that set it apart from the competition when considering venting. What is really amazing about this jacket is its permanent durable water resistant qualities that come not from coating the outside of the fabric, but rather using Pertex Microlight fabric, which is naturally DWR. In the end, it was the highest scorer in the review. Truly, compared to the competition, there is virtually nothing to complain about.
